A collaboration device may include a large interactive display in the form factor of, for example, an interactive whiteboard. An interactive whiteboard may be a standalone touchscreen computer used independently to perform tasks and operations, or a connectable apparatus used as a touchpad to control computers from a projector. Conventional interactive whiteboards may present challenges for users with mobility or accessibility needs, especially for individuals who use wheelchairs, as they may be unable to reach the interactive whiteboard. Presented herein are techniques that enable an interactive whiteboard to recognize mobility or accessibility impaired users and to dynamically adapt the position of the whiteboard accordingly.
